Forty-seven House Democrats have told Speaker Nancy Pelosi that they want tax rates on capital gains and dividends maintained at the current level of up to 15% for all earners.

Meanwhile, House Democratic leaders seem unlikely to seek a floor vote on extending just some of the tax breaks before Congress goes to recess.
